Menu, week of 9/22

Standard

mpm-chalkboard

Last week went pretty well, menu plan-wise. We didn’t follow the plan exactly, but it was pretty close. I made something different than what was planned two nights, and it turned out that I didn’t have leftovers for Friday, so I went out with a friend instead. Of course, I did post my plan late, so I knew what I was working with for the beginning of the week, but it was still a good week.

This week we are settling into the school year routine, and I feel almost like I can handle life again. Here look, it is actually Monday when I am posting my menu plan Monday post. I did a big shopping trip to Costco, too, so we have plenty of food–thank goodness for the freezer I bought last month. I’ve only had it about a month and I already can’t imagine how I managed without it!

This week is not too crazy, unless I am forgetting something, ;). I have an event to attend during the workday that is near my house tomorrow, so I will work from home an extra day. That always helps with getting things done, especially now that I am taking a pottery class on Tuesday evenings. I don’t think I have anything else to do in the evenings this week besides that class, though–nothing that will take me out of the house, at least. There are always plenty of things to be done.

Sunday: Takeout at a friend’s house

Monday: Sirloin steak with shrimp scampi, roasted green beans and mushrooms, steamed broccoli

Tuesday: Bratwurst, spinach salad

Wednesday: Garlic Pork Roast in the slow cooker, sauteed spinach, buttered broccoli, applesauce for kids

Thursday: Bacon cheeseburger meatloaf, buttered broccoli

Friday: Pizza–meatza for me, chickpea flour crust for kids

Saturday: Leftovers

As always, lots more ideas can be found at orgjunkie.com

  1. Your menu looks amazing! Isn’t that a funny thing about getting a freezer? I can’t imagine life without mine either. 🙂 Have a great week!

    • I love Costco! I do a giant trip once a month and I don’t have yo do much shopping the rest of he month– and not just food, either. I get as much as I can there. It is good prices, and I gt the bulk of my shoppng over with in one fell swoop, 🙂 .

  2. When/if I get my own house, the first two things I’ll buy will be a dishwasher and a proper freezer! Freezers are so practical, and save you having to make too many trips to the shops.
